Not an explanation of ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Theory)--instead Harris invents his own model
Reviewed in Australia on 9 May 2022
Russ Harris chose to develop his own model "to simplify" ACT, but I wanted to learn ACT. Harris' model in this book is "the choice point" model, but it's a model that to me is less precise and also it's a model that isn't used by anyone else. In "The Happiness Trap Pocketbook" Harris explains the basics of ACT using ACT language, and visually also. There is also in that book a clearer explanation of what, exactly, is "the happiness trap" (p. 39 of that book). In sum, I found The Happiness Trap Pocketbook to be more useful (for learning ACT).
